Katie & Charles were married a few weeks ago at Firle Place Riding School – a hugely popular country house wedding venue in Sussex and one I’ve had the pleasure of returning to many times over the years for weddings.
Weddings just have something special. You can’t put your finger on it – It’s a sort of intangible magic.
Duaa and Titus’ Pelham House Wedding was packed full of this magic.
Not only did they put their beautiful Sussex wedding from the other side of the planet, in just a couple of months.
But they planned their day alongside relocating, across the globe + moving house + starting new jobs.
These guys certainly know how to make life tough for themselves – but they certainly pulled it off.
Where to begin with this day, it was a total roller coaster of joy. Max said in his speech that he and Katie are always the happiest people in whatever room they’re in – it’s impossible not to agree – smiles and laughter covered their faces for the entire day, except perhaps with a small break for the emotional bits – but those are entirely required at a wedding!
They certainly had some competition from their family and friends in the happiness stakes though, the joy and enthusiasm from everyone was utterly contagious – everyone was in incredible spirits and completely up for a party. From the excitement of the preparations in the morning through to the dancing in the evening, everything was infused with joy – exactly what’s needed to make for an incredible day.
Alice and Greg’s Cowdray House Wedding, just before Christmas was the most magical day!
Planning an afternoon ceremony in late December, Alice knew from the start it would likely be cold and dark (and as it turned out, wet!) meaning the majority of their day would be inside – something that we’re very used to working with, given the wonderfully unpredictable weather!
But she couldn’t have chosen a grander location, and she certainly couldn’t have picked a more fitting place for a Christmas wedding.
The Cowdray estate and Buck hall the room they used for their reception, looked perfect – including the biggest Christmas tree we have ever seen! We were also briefed to get lots of lovely photos of the fireplaces roaring away in the library – something that we naturally would have done, more so given the coldness of the day, any excuse to go near a lovely warm fire!
Alice got ready with her bridesmaids at the family home in Hampshire, and as she grew up in the house it was only right that we captured lots of details showing the history – like the lovely little detail on her childhood bedroom door!
In Early June, on a wonderfully warm, yet overcast day Eunji and Joe celebrated their love with a Wadhurst Castle wedding, surrounded by Sheep in East Sussex. They brought their nearest and dearest family and friends from all across the globe and celebrated in beautiful, intimate style with an outdoor ceremony in the walled garden, followed by a delightful meal in the garden room.
Laura & James got married at Thornbridge Hall in the Peak District. It’s so special to travel long distances for weddings. Immersing yourself in the wedding for the entire weekend. Laura and James traveled roughly 4500 miles from Dubai. Where they live, to get married here surrounded by their family and friends.
We’re incredibly lucky that Britain has some of the most illustrious and breathtaking wedding venues in the world – Hampton Court Palace Weddings are right at the top of that list. If you like your weddings grand – you’re in the right place.
I met Kate & Chris for the first time a few weeks before their wedding, at their venue – the majestic Hampton Court Palace.
Kate works at Hampton Court and treated me to a wonderful tour around the palace & its stunning grounds, which allowed me to see all the parts she loved & to learn a little of the history behind the place.
To say her passion for the palace shone through was a complete understatement – Kate described to me, the feelings she had when she saw the palace as a little girl, how she knew it was the place would be a huge part of her life, and that she would eventually be married there.
Rosie and Alistair got married at Chichester Cathedral. Bishop Michael performed their ceremony. A wonderful Double Decker bus ride for the guests. They had their reception at Goodwood House. Photos on the Lawns of the Goodwood Estate. A fun-filled, Luxurious day.
With the ceremony taking place at the magnificent Chichester Cathedral and the reception held at Goodwood House in Sussex, Rosie and Alistair’s wedding was the epitome of English elegance.
The couple are originally from Sussex but now live in Switzerland, so they flew over from Zurich to be married at the Cathedral by Bishop Michael, a close friend of Rosie’s family.
After the wedding ceremony a vintage double decker bus was ready and waiting to transport everyone to Goodwood House. While the guests were boarding the bus I made a mad dash to get to Goodwood ahead of them so I could get some shots as they made their arrival up the sweeping driveway.
Later on in the evening Rosie & Alistair unveiled one of their own special wedding touches: a giant illuminated sign spelling out Cogwalks – a play on their new married names! I’ve seen big letters like this at a few Asian Weddings and they always make for showstopping photos!
Rosie works in events so as you’d expect the day was meticulously planned and went without a hitch!
Massive congratulations Rosie & Alistair!
